    Short and pudgy are no reason not to donate, please donate them with confidence.

    Regarding the difference between the bakes…what do you think has contributed to the difference?

    Regarding standards for donation – we dont’ have anything in writing, but I think we will create a page for just that. Here are some quick thoughts:

    In general if you would eat and enjoy the bread it is worthy of donation, otherwise hold it back. In addition if any of the following is true you likely should not donate …Soggy loaves, burnt loaves are not donatable, squat loaves that look more like a can of Spam.

    Loaves that are split due to under proofing or collapse during to over proofing are fine.

    After making 4 lovely practice loaves through two different baking sessions, today for the real bake, my two donor loaves are … less than ideal. They are shorter than expected and pudgy (like me). Should I still bring them in? I think it was a problem with proofing (tried to reproof after a mistimed return home to bake). I have a loaf left over from my 4 practice ones, which could be donated, but it’s not been frozen (made it on Wednesday). I would like to contribute. Can someone guide me on the standards for donations? Thanks! traci
